A colleague asked me what I thought about the use of Netflix to meet the DVD needs/demands of public library users.  This person was interested in using the Netflix service as a way to provide titles that are either unattainable via inter-library loan or beyond the scope of the library’s collection.  What do you think?  If you’ve made use of Netflix in your library, please share your experience.  Thanks!  -  Judah Hamer
